Sometimes I just can’t beat the man known as Peter Sciretta over at Slashfilm. And today is one of those days. He’s put together a hilarious story mocking one of my own favorite whipping posts — MTV — and their casting rumor-mongering based on Sam Worthington’s wardrobe selection during a recent Avatar live chat. Worthington, Hollywood’s new action tentpole boy-toy, was spotted wearing an Avengers t-shirt, leading the great minds at the former music television network to speculate that he’s either in talks or silently campaigning to be a part of the Marvel Studios film, due in 2012, one that doesn’t even have a director yet.
It’s absurd, I know. Now, if only someone would spot me wearing my National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation shirt, I could finally get them to green-light my proposed remake.
